Brought in 22 people to eat. They did a great job accommodating us all! More than a bagel shop they have a very diverse menu. I opted for my breakfast in a tortilla instead of a bagel. Eggs cheese and sausage and at an extra cost jalapeño green peppers and scallions. It was very good. Most of the girls stuck... More

Just across the street from The Lil Dooey and a stone's throw from campus, excellent coffee and a tasty selection of sweet baked treats complement a wide variety of fresh bagels and make City Bagel Cafe a preferred spot for hosting breakfast meetings. The main dining area is spacious with a vaulted ceiling, but the quieter outdoor courtyard is the... More

Great for breakfast, esp. if you like bagels. Nice for lunch, go for the quiche and soup special combo of the day. Weekend dinners feature pizzas and classic Italian trattoria fare. BYOb on wine, decent bottle beer selection. Under new management but they have maintained Joe and Mary's high standards.

This place is great. A little expensive to go every day but their bagels are fresh made everyday and very nice atmosphere.

This place is in my top 10 of best places I have ever eaten. Everything on the menu is amazing and the atmosphere is perfect for whatever occasion you have. There is seating outside in a quaint courtyard or open seating inside. It is perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and the even serve dinner. I always get the roast beef... More

Joe & Mary have developed and nurtured a gem in Starkville. Highly recommended for breakfast, lunch or (limited days) dinners. Joe & Mary will retire this year, although City Bagel will solder on. The coffee is expanding. As is the Italian dinner menu, but get there early and BYOB your wine of choice (sodas and beer are available on-site).

Family friendly restaurant with creative menu of pasta and pizza choices Wednesday-Friday night. We keep ordering the same thing because it goes so well with the wine we bring. Chicken Pasta Primavera with cream sauce and Cajun Chicken Spaghettini with a bottle of red and a bottle of white. Just right.

I visited this place after a 20 year hiatus. It was a college breakfast favorite. Morning glory muffins were always fabulous. Unfortunately it was too late in the day and they had sold out. I ordered chicken salad on a spinach bagel with sprouts and spinach. It was a good, decent meal with Zapp's chips and unsweetened tea. Cost about... More

Who would believe that the best Italian food in town is found at the Bagel stop! But it's true! Every Wed - Sat night, City Bagel serves pizza, shrimp and grits, and the best pasta dishes I have ever eaten. They'll provide plastic wine glasses for your BYOB, and if you top your dinner off with a brownie or an... More

A friend and I had lunch here a few days ago. He already had his food when I arrived, but mine came quickly enough so it was not a problem that he started before I did. I ordered a cup of the tomato basil soup, with bagel chips, and a tuna melt. The soup was more tomato than basil, but... More
